Ostrich Syndrome

August 2008
Can I just bury my head? I am getting these forward emails from my friends about how they became a couple with their man. Am I the ONLY single woman I know? Oh my word ... am I?
I sent a message back to STOP sending me the emails. I don't want to hear about their happiness. The response back? "Oh Darling Nikki, have fun with it". So after thinking about it I was like ... I'm game.
This is my email Darling Nikki style:

Still no sex drive. However I am happy. I am really happy and I'm having a lot of fun.

  1. Hello Nikki,

    Thanks for adding my blog, had a look at your diary - very funny. Especially liked the Mr Perfect questionnaire. Can I have a Mr Perfect too? I'm sure my husband wouldn't notice the addition. :)

    Looking forward to reading more,


We need to chat. You start.
